Vale to adjust provisions for Brazil dam disaster in Q2 results

SAO PAULO, July 16 (Reuters) - Brazilian miner Vale SA may adjust provisions for a deadly dam burst in Brumadinho this year as part of its second-quarter results following a settlement with workers, the company said in a securities filing on Tuesday.

Vale announced on Monday it would pay 400 million reais ($106 million) to compensate workers affected by the deadly rupture of a tailing dam in January. The company did not detail how it planned to change its provisions.
